Bruins Star Wears Bear Pelt for Hat Trick Celebration After Fan Throws It

David Pastrnak’s 17th career hat trick led the Boston Bruins to a 6-2 victory over the Ottawa Senators, highlighted by fans throwing hats and an unusual (fake?) bear pelt onto the ice.

David Pastrnak, the Boston Bruins’ star forward, did something pretty amazing on Tuesday. He snagged his 17th career regular-season hat trick. That’s right. His performance? Stellar. It propelled his team to a solid 6-2 victory against the Ottawa Senators.

But wait, there’s more. His third goal wasn’t just any goal. It marked his 44th of the season. And, as tradition dictates, it triggered a flood of hats onto the ice from the home crowd. Quite the sight, really.

Now, here’s the kicker. Among the sea of hats, something unusual made its appearance. A bear pelt. Yeah, you heard that right. And no, it wasn’t real (we think?). But there it was, being handed over to Pastrnak. One of the Bruins’ crew, who was out there clearing the ice, passed it to him. Talk about an odd but memorable moment!
